    GENEVA, SWITZERLAND — This grant to UNHCR supports a study on the root causes of unaccompanied child migration in the U.S.-Mexico-Central American corridor. The project addresses the surge of unaccompanied child migration to the United States registered in 2011-2012. Based on the study findings, a report and a series of recommendations will be produced and presented to the U.S. and Mexican governments. Recommendations will focus on improving child protection systems during apprehension, detention, and repatriation. UNHCR will also monitor how effectively protection of children is guaranteed when apprehended migrant children are screened for protection needs and fear of persecution.
